Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things The Bible Doesn't Say

Adam Hamilton, Abingdon Press 2016

True or false: 1. Everything happens for a reason. 2. God helps those who help themselves. 3. God won't give you more than you can handle. 4. God said it, I believe it, that settles it. 5. Love the sinner, hate the sin. All true? Not so fast. We've heard these phrases all of our lives but in this 5-week study, Adam Hamilton explains that, although they capture some element of truth, when compared to the wisdom found in
Scripture, they're really just common Christian clichés. Hamilton, presenting to a group in his engaging style, breaks down these common sayings using Scripture and story with practical applications.
